A Wreath of Presents-What We Got For Christmas 2018

Merry belated Christmas, everyone! Can you believe New Years’ is so soon? 2018 flew by! I’m pretty excited for the new year. There are quite a few awesome things happening. Including something that begins on January 1, here on the blog. 😉 I’m also really excited for Blaire Wilson, the new GOTY. From what I saw from her books, she seems like she’ll be a really interesting doll.

Today, I wanted to share the doll related items my sister and I got for Christmas. In no way am I trying to brag by doing this. I like reading these types of posts and they’re pretty fun to make.

So, let’s begin!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas-A Doll-op of AG Edition

This photo shoot was inspired by the poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas” by Clement Clark Moore, better known as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Some of the words have been changed, but you can find the original here.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even Melody. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

AG Holiday Room Tour

Happy Almost Christmas! Ahhhh! 2 more days, you guys!

Yesterday, I set up the doll’s holiday living room area. I’m really happy with how it looks. It’s sort of based on my house’s two living rooms if they were combined.

You might notice that the living room is in a different area than usual. Since I don’t have a dollhouse, doll rooms are made around my house when needed. I usually make the living room on a big platform on the stairs. But, this time, I made it in my living room. The lighting is so much better!

So, here we go!

Welcome back and happy holidays, Felicity Fans! Since Christmas is coming up, I decided to create a little gift guide. That way, all of you can dress just as fantastically as me, the Fantastic Felicity!

Note From Rose: This post is not sponsored by AG, though according to Felicity, they now wish that they did. Also, we do not own any of these outfits. All of the comments are based on the stock photos and what we’ve seen in stores. All images from the American Girl shopping website

Out of the Woods-A Lyric Photo Shoot

Out of the Woods

By Taylor Swift

Starring Hollis and Felicity

Looking at it now
It all seems so simple
We were lying on your couch
I remember

IMG_2365

You took a Polaroid of us
Then discovered (then discovered)
The rest of the world was black and white
But we were in screaming color

IMG_2352

And I remember thinking
Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?
Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?
Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?
Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet, good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?
Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?
Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?
Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet, good
Are we out of the woods

The Festival of Lights-A Hanukkah Photo Shoot

‘Tis the first night of Hanukkah! Happy Hanukkah to all of my Jewish readers! In celebration, I did a themed photo shoot. I used a dreidel, some pennies for gelt, and a string of fairy lights.

After doing this photo shoot, Sara and I played dreidel. It’s quite a lot of fun!

The Return of the Turkey-A Thanksgiving Photo Story

Check Out Part 1 Here

Narrator’s POV

Thanksgiving Morning

img_3547

Rose sat in the living room, daydreaming of karate, pie, and turkey. Turkey. That reminded her.

“Emmy?” she called to her cousin, who had come in from the kitchen.

img_3548

“Yes, Rose?” she answered kindly.

“Do you remember Gobbles?”

“Your pet turkey?”

“Yeah. I miss him. You know, since it’s Thanksgiving and all. Wait, we’re not having turkey this year, are we?”

“No, we’ve permanently switched to chicken. Hollis’ mom sent up a recipe for us to try, so Hollis is prepping the chicken right now.”

“That’s good. I wish I could see Gobbles again.”

Emmy hugged her cousin, not sure how to answer.

From the foyer, the doorbell rang.

img_3549

“I’ve got it!”, yelled Lea, running down the stairs. Lea opened the door, but there was no one there.

Something made a squawking sound from below the door.

img_3550

She looked down and gasped. Below her was a real, live, squawking bird.

Happy Dolloween! (What My Dolls Are Wearing)-2018

Happy Halloween! Or should I say, Dolloween. 😉 It’s certainly been a while, but I’ve had a lot going on. Hopefully I can figure out a way to be more consistent. For now, enjoy the costumes!

It appears to be a tradition that on the day I take my doll’s Halloween photos, it’s raining. I took these in front of my fireplace. My little sister Sara helped with the photos and dressed her own dolls.

My Thoughts on the 2018 AG Holiday Release

On October 1, doll lovers everywhere got to rejoice because AG released their holiday collection! This also means that the holidays are almost here. How? I feel like I was just prepping last year’s Halloween photo shoot.

AG released a moderate amount of items this time including a gigantic mix and match collection. The only collections that got new items were the Truly Me dolls, Bitty Babies, and Wellie Wishers. I will be talking about the Truly Me and the Wellie Wisher clothing releases because those are the types of dolls my little sister and I have.

So, let’s begin!
